Goldin News Network: The Business of Being a Writer
- Dear Friends,
My classic nonfiction work The Business of Being a Writer
<http://parsina.com/business.html> is gaining new life. Already two of
its chapters (A Career in Writing
<http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/15371> and Rights and Copyrights
<http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/15401>) have been updated and
reprinted in electronic formats; more will come as I get the time. If
you have any aspirations as a writer, this is something not to miss.
*Theodore Sturgeon* called /The Business of Being a Writer / "the second
best reference book a writer can have, after the dictionary."
*Harlan Ellison* said, "It may not make you a better writer, but it will
keep you from being a poorer one."
*Isaac Asimov* said, "Thank goodness! I am constantly being asked an
infinity of questions about the writing business and can never answer
coherently. Now I will stamp cards with a stamp that says: READ /THE
BUSINESS OF BEING A WRITER/. IT WILL TELL YOU EVERYTHING, CLEARLY AND
INTERESTINGLY. Why on Earth didn't he write the book forty years ago
when it would have done /me/ some good?"
